US President Barack Obama and his predecessor George W Bush have honoured the victims of the al-Qaeda bombing of the US embassy in the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam 15 years ago.
Two men joined a ceremony and took a moment of silence at a memorial stone in the new embassy compound, honouring 11 Tanzanians killed and 85 Americans and Tanzanians wounded in the bombing on August 7, 1998.
Obama and his wife Michelle Obama crossed paths with Bush and his wife Laura, who were hosting the summit promoting the role of African first ladies in bringing change to their countries.
